AN electric blanket caused a house fire.
Twenty firefighters and four fire engines were called to tackle the blaze at a block of flats on Bream Close, Tottenham, at 3.30pm yesterday afternoon.
Four floors and a flat on the first floor were damaged by the fire.
There were no injuries.
The London Fire Brigade has issued a warning to not leave electric blankets on overnight or when leaving the house, in order to prevent them overheating and catching fire.
